The workshop included representatives from the Water Institute, including Ecohydrology and Biogeochemistry research groups, shared insights on research areas and findings, followed by student presentations on topics related to the impact of climate change on nutrients and contaminants transport in agroecosystems. The delegates also received a tour of the Ecohydrology Research Facilities in the Environmental and Information Technology (EIT) and Physics buildings.

In return the CRAES delegates shared insights on the management and control of agricultural soil contamination, and current agricultural soil research in China.

The visit ended with an enjoyable day visiting scenic Niagara Falls before heading back to Beijing.

In 2017, the Water Institute signed a Memorandum of Understanding with CRAES to promote educational and scientific co-operation.
